'One nation can't have 2 flags': BJP condemns ex-J&K CM's tricolour comment

PDP chief Mehbooba Mufti came under attack for her comments on Indian flag.

Mufti recently said she won't raise the tricolour till J&K state flag is restored.

She made the comments with the flag of erstwhile J&K state on her table.

Union Minister Ravi Shankar Prasad called her comments anti-national.

He said, “We condemn how Mehbooba Mufti has insulted the Indian tricolour.

Her statement that she won't raise the tricolour until the J&K state flag is restored via Article 370 - there can't be any comment more objectionable than this.

The tricolour is India's national flag.

Jammu & Kashmir is an inviolable part of India.

Article 370 was removed as per Constitutional process.

Both Houses of Parliament cleared it.

Today, J&K has good administration, strict action against terror.

People are happy there.

To such a statement about not raising the tricolour till the state flag is restored, we want to say - Article 370 will never be restored.

It has ended.

One nation can't have two symbols, two chiefs.

There can't be two flags.”

‘Oppression increased in J&K after we decided to contest DDC polls’: PDP chief

PDP president Mehbooba Mufti on Sunday said elections are no solution to the Kashmir problem and called for a dialogue between India and Pakistan to address the issue. She also accused the BJP-led government at the Centre of “murdering the democracy” in the name of District Development Council (DDC) polls as alliance candidates were being confined to homes while others enjoyed full freedom to campaign. The PDP chief said the alliance candidates were not allowed to freely campaign for the DDC polls. "Our people do not have security. They have been confined to their homes and not allowed to run poll campaign while BJP candidates are freely roaming around. This is not done? Will this country run on the BJP's agenda?"They tell us not to talk about Article 370. BJP ministers visit Kashmir and nine out of 10 times, they talk about the revocation of Article 370. I fail to understand that when they are confident that Artilce 370 is gone and will not be restored, why do they get rattled so much when I speak about it," she said.
